First and last time that I will read this author's work. Obvious and unnecessary liberal bias inserted into plot in very odd places.

Sara Paretsky writes some really awesome, complicated stories. SHELL GAME is right up there with the most complicated and best. An incredible mix of murder, massive family dysfunction, abused women, ICE and its current roles in border security, federal-state-county-city jurisdictional disputes, looting of Middle East artifacts, the underground market for looted artifacts, Russians, payday loan companies, engineering students, billionaires with runaway egos, etc. I was so turned around throughout this story to figure what happened, to whom, and why that I needed the ending to finally see it. What a great writer and what an awesome story. Like so many crime/adventure/thriller writers these days, Peratsky is getting very skilled at weaving current events into the middle of her stories, it leaves you breathless. And to top it off, you have the irrepressible V. I. Warshawski whose sarcastic and humorous put downs of jerks not only make you laugh, but make you want to read her next adventure. Soon, please Sara.
